Parents! You know we ask every year for you to take the 5 Essentials Survey. Our schools need 20% parent participation in order to reflect positively on our school report cards. Right now we are averaging about 13%. Could we get a boost from everyone to push us over the threshold? THANK YOU! http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/

It's time for the annual 5 Essentials Parent Survey! It takes about 15 minutes to complete this survey, once for each school that your child attends. This means that some of you may take the survey up to 3 times. Tip: When you are asked for the county, spell-out "Saint Clair" and don't use abbreviations. We promise to read all anonymous feedback, so please participate in the survey. This is very important for our district and to benefit the most from our state report card, we need at least 20% parent participation at each school. Please complete as soon as possible. We hope to reach our participation goal by January 31st. Thank you! http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/
